This car is reliable as far as the
engine and tranny are concerned (5spd).
I like a lot of the features of the car
and the famous saab safety. However,
parts are expensive for saab's - brakes
for rear 400$, Heater fan failed,
clutch seems high, bought w/ 118k,
tranny was replaced at 80k. Handles
well and feels heavy and solid when
driving. Ride is somewhat harsh, but
Styling, interior style, safety,
reliability...hatchback..Great in the
A little more clutch, price of
parts/labor. Parts and labor are
sometimes hard to find..
